To prevent cancer with food, you must religiously eat cancer-fighting foods every day! These fine whole foods combat the cancer cells your body creates every day.

The paramount thing to remember is,

  • "Sugar Feeds Cancer Cells"
  • "Cancer Loves Hiding in Fat Cells"

The best cancer-fighting foods are the ones that stop you from packing on extra pounds of fat. This means you must avoid foods containing saturated meat, fat with high-fructose corn syrup and superfluous additives.

Cancer cells feed on sugar foods of all types! Sugar aids, cancer cells to divide and multiply quickly. Thus, if you're prone to developing cancer, or if cancer runs in your family, it's best to stay away from processed sugar foods altogether!

Beverages That Prevent Cancer!

Beverages that prevent cancer are herbal teas, dandelion root tea, roasted barley tea, ashitaba plant tea, and rice milk, purified spring water, apple cider, and decaffeinated grain coffees.

When eating meat or fish make sure you are aware of its source. It is best to eat organic meat if you are prone to developing cancer. Eat free-range and hormone-free poultry and eggs. Make sure the red meat you eat are grain feed and with no added hormones, as well.

To ward off cancer, the ocean fish you eat should have fins and scales to minimize the toxicity of heavy metals. This means shellfish of all types is dangerous for you to eat when you are desperately trying to prevent cancer cells from claiming your body for a suitable home. In addition, seafood such as shrimp, crab, and lobster are high in cholesterol and will overwork your liver.

Express Yourself

This may seem difficult with the drastic cancer prognosis you received from your doctor. However, try to put this dreadful report behind you, and be proactive to beat your cancer.

Eat as healthy as you can and exercise to your ability and find ways to laugh. The more you laugh off, causes your brain to make a plethora of endorphins that are released throughout your body. These chemicals are known to kill cancer cells further!

Be high-spirited! Know the inner healer within you desires more than anything to restore you to health! Draw on this great inspiration and do everything in your power to beat your cancer ailment. Believe your glorious body will take care of the rest!
